The all-new 2017 Kia Sportage will be rolling into showrooms in March starting at $23,885 for the front-drive Sportage LX, which is $750 more than the 2016 model. The mid-level Sportage EX will open at $26,395 and the top-line Sportage SX Turbo stickers at $33,395, increases of $150 and $2,510 respectively, however all versions of this compact crossover SUV now come with more standard features as well as upgraded comfort/convenience/safety options. Adding Kia’s Magna Dynamax intelligent AWD system that also includes a 50/50 locking center differential and torque vectoring along with a more off-road friendly front fascia adds another $1,500 to each of those figures.
